Warehouse sale to benefit library friends

The last Book Warehouse Sale of the year, organized by the Friends of Jacksonville Public Library, will be held No. 9 at the FJPL’s Book Warehouse.
The book warehouse is located at 3435 University Blvd. N. in the University Park Library.
Organizers said the sale will be one of the group’s largest.
“We’ve expanded our shelving space and we have lots of books to sell,” said Harry Reagan, president of FJPL. “Our sale opens with a members-only night and we’ll be offering our $10 bag special several days.”
The special is all the books that can be stuffed into a brown grocery bag for $10. Book prices are $2 for hardcover and $1 for softcover and 50 cents for paperbacks. DVDs and CDs are $3. Children’s books are $1 for hardcover and 50 cents for softcover. “Better books” are individually priced, mostly $4 to $8.
Reagan said FJPL will be asking shoppers to sign petitions supporting a straw vote on establishing a special tax district for the library. The tax district was the proposal that came out of a special JCCI (Jacksonville Community Council Inc.) study to find a way to stabilize library funding. The library budget has been cut several times in recent years.
Reagan said FJPL also is helping organize petition circulators to work at voting places during early voting and on Election Day.
